GS1 UK launches a brand new online seller conference, cementing our commitment in helping small business trade online.

Small businesses make up the largest part of our membership and we recognise there is a huge demand for advice and information, to help these businesses grow.

This is the core message of our very first online summit – ‘Take your business to new heights’.

GS1 UK is an important partner in e-commerce, with GTINs now mandated by the leading online marketplaces and retailers. This new conference will help you understand how to develop and grow your business using online sales channels, and the value of using trusted product data and e-commerce standards.

We are delighted that so many of our valued partners are keen to get involved with the conference with leading speakers on the agenda, including Google, eBay, M2E Pro, Enterprise Nation, the DIT and World First.

GS1 UK members such as Peace & Blessings will also share their experiences of growing an online business. And there are more speakers to follow!

We’ll be running this conference together with our partner Online Seller UK – specialists in digital marketing and e-commerce training. The day is aimed at businesses who are already selling online - be it through the marketplaces or through their own website, and are now ready to scale up and grow sales.

We’ve identified 4 key pillars that will shape the day’s content, plus inspirational SME champions will be an important part of the day.

  1. Building up your brand & audience online
  2. Scaling your business using more online channels
  3. Getting the most from online marketplaces
  4. Go cross border and start your export plan

Chief Marketing Officer, Holly Porter, says “We are delighted to be working with many of our partners to help UK small businesses better understand how they can grow their online sales. As an industry neutral, not-for-profit organsisation, GS1 UK provides some of the important standards and tools that help businesses of all sizes manage their product data through their various supply chains. With the current growth in UK enterpreneurs, this is a great opportunity to help them take their business to the next level. ”

The conference will take place on 6 June 2018, at Foyles in Charing Cross road, London – the flagship store for this celebrated bookshop.
